Asian Pacific Islander Family Resources Network (APIFRN) is a family-responsive, community-based, linguistically-appropriate, and geographically dispersed system of care for API families citywide. It is a network of linguistically- and culturally-competent family resource centers serving ten Asian Pacific Islander ethnic groups: Cambodian, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Thai, Mongolian, Samoan and Vietnamese.

Our mission is to support San Francisco’s Asian and Pacific Islander families with children age 0-18 to be healthy, strong, and self-sufficient through providing quality services, working collaboratively, and advocating effectively.
